Kisumu new chief officer finance

Ramoya, a former National Assembly employee is set to replace Erick Angwenyi Orangi.

Speaker Elisha Oraro put the question after the MCAs debated on the vetting report.

However, Kajulu MCA Roy Samo protested at the edging out of Orangi who is a young being replaced by a retiree.

Samo says young people are being sacrificed in the county at the expense of older people.

His counterpart Gard Olima of South West Nyakach says the nominee has been had picked since the person who qualified for the post was dropped for selfish interests.

Olima castigated the Assembly for being used as conveyor belts by the executive to push their interests.

In the meantime, Kisumu City Manager Dorice Ombara has been sent on a compulsory leave by the city board.

Ombara was issued with a letter from the board chairman Elija Adul who says her contract tenure at the city has ended.

The board has appointed Peter Adero Onditi, a clerk at the Kisumu County Assembly who is set to take over office on Friday.
